How to make Baked Fish Croquette

  1. To cook the fish, generally, raw fish pieces are cooked in a pan of water, cooled and then mashed, later again they are cooked with spices. (But my kids and hubby don't like the smell of raw fishes, so I marinate the fish pieces with a pinch of turmeric and salt.)
  2. To make the croquettes, put the mashed fish in a bowl, then add in the mashed potato. Mix them well. Keep aside. In a pan, heat the oil, add the finely chopped onions and green chillies, once the onions are fried, add the ginger-garlic paste and chopped tomatoes.
  3. Cool the cooked fish mixture to make the croquettes. Once it has cooled down, give any shape you want. (You can make round like balls, round and flat, cylindrical, rectangular any shape you want. I made them into round and flat shapes.)
  4. To coat the croquettes, take a well-beaten egg in a bowl, in another bowl take the bread crumb, take one croquette, dip it first in the egg wash, then roll it in bread crumbs, keep aside. Do the same for other croquettes. Dip each patty again in the egg wash.
  5. To bake the croquettes, heat just 1 tsp oil in a flat frying pan, place each croquettes in the frying pan on a medium flame, keep them for 2-3 minutes or till they are lightly brown on each side. (If needed, add 1 more tsp of oil.)
  6. Fish croquettes or Maacher Chops are ready to be served.
  7. Serve with tomato ketchup, green chilli sauce or Bengali's Kasundi (mustard sauce).
